    « 2 day visit »

    Stayed two days in mid November. Location is good, parking difficult for large 4x4-otherwise on the street. Opposite, is one of the very best restaurants in the area-closed Mondays. Rooms are modern, very clean. Wi-fi is 100 0/0. Breakfast is good value @ 10 euro. All in all, an excellent stay.

    « Very nice accommodations with lovely staff »

    This hotel is in a great location and the rooms are nice. The structure is old and unique so finding your room is aided by the kind staff. The breakfast is really good with FRESH offerings and lovely services. When you enter you have to struggle to get your luggage up a set of stairs to the registration desk. After staying there a few days I asked the hotel for help with luggage and they gave it. We were very happy staying here and will stay there again when we return. THere was a really nice young man from England who worked at buffet and helping whereever he could who was particularly engaging and pleasant. SOrry I don't remember your name.

    « Conveniently placed between the centres »

    Perfectly comfortable room with friendly and helpful staff at the desk. However, the room has been designed to appeal to the eye rather than with practical things in mind such as storage space for clothes. No restaurant but plenty of advice as to where to go. Limited parking off road so important to book in advance. The hotel is equidistant from the two old city centres in Limoges. One has the cathedral, galleries and museums and the other is more for shopping and eating.

    « Modern room, great service »

    Check-in and checkout was swift and efficient and the rooms were modern and clean. We pre booked secure overnight parking in the locked underground car park for an extra 10 Euros. It is worth noting that there are only a few spaces available, so pre booking is essential.

    « Very nice stay! »

    This hotel is in an excellent location, in the center of town in Limoges, France. There are several restaurants nearby and a market next door. It's with 30 minutes (driving) to Oradour-sur-Glane. Wifi is free, although I'm having a problem getting and then staying connected. You can park in their private, enclosed garage for ten euros a day, money well spent I think. There's a breakfast buffet, but no restaurant, but there is delivery if you want. The front desk staff are very nice and helpful. There's complimentary water, tea and coffee and a door that opens up to a shared patio overlooking the street. Also, there's a towel heater, which works quite nicely for drying hand-washed clothes, too! Lastly, sleep was amazing! There's an automated shade and it has provided excellent room darkness and the bed and pillows were amazing!

    « Great respite from the city »

    Don't be put off by the dowdy exterior. Inside - and particularly the bedrooms - it's a very pleasant oasis of calm and quality. We had a superior room which delivered on all fronts. Good size, excellent lighting, wonderfully comfortable king size bed, excellent bath/shower facilities, good size flat screen TV, complimentary water etc. Very quite and got a great nights sleep before getting to the airport first thing Monday morning - only 15 minutes by car! Not expensive for the location and quality and you can stroll into the old pedestrian quarters of Limoges in 10 minutes. There maybe better hotels in Limoges centre but I won't bother looking for them while this one keeps up their standards. Don't forget to reserve a private parking space well before arrival of you need one as they are fairly limited but worth the €10 per night charge.

    « great customer service »

    We were upgraded to a superior room which was quite spacious. Well furnished and clean. Free wi fi, tea and coffee and bottles of water in the fridge. Paid €10 to park overnight but came down in the morning to find the windscreen had been cleaned - very useful when driving a long distance. Staff in all areas of hotel could not have been more helpful, particularly as we were travelling with an elderly relative. Breakfast buffet was very good. All in all, good for the price.

    « Good location in Limoges »

    We stopped outside the parking garage to check in and were surprised to hear it was already full. We choose hotels with parking when we travel in Europe but I guess I missed the fact that this hotel had limited spaces. Anyway we parked round the corner in the Indigo parking at the university which was fine. Check in was fine and found our room very comfortable and a good size. bathroom was also nice and airco was a plus. Very comfortable nights sleep and with the Carrefour Express next door we opted to get OJ from there for a light breakfast. Only negative was wifi as the signal was weak and you had to enter the (complex) password every time you booted up. Other than that, a pleasant stay. Oh, but they also could do with a ramp on the stairs up to reception for suitcases!

    « Overnight in Limoges to visit the porcelain factories and museums »

    Room was cozy though a bit tight, all amenities needed were available. Too bad extra charge for breakfast and garage, though handy when no parking available on street. Extremely friendly staff upon arrival and departure, helpful at all times.

    « Calm and clean »

    We were upgraded to a superior room though we don't know the difference between the standard. Room was neat, clean and spacious with free parking and free wifi. The hotel is quite far from the main center (by foot). We arrived one sunday, and considering it was summer season, all the restaurants nearby were closed. We had option either to order dinner from the hotel dining which offers packed meals heated on microwave oven; or walk about 15 to 20 minutes to find a food establishment in the main center. Overall, we still recommend this hotel for its quality over price.

    « A gem of a hotel! »

    My husband and I stayed in this hotel while passing through the city of. Limoges. The hotel is well situated, nicely renovated, and staff are very friendly and accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to a superior room. Everything about the room was very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. We highly recommend it!

    Standard, clean and functional. Helpful and professional staff. Grocers next door. Easy walking to the picturesque old town where good dining can be found. Go visit the Limoges porcelain museum and the maisonette during voucher.

    « Good spec and comfortable room. »

    Loved this hotel all quality furniture, comfortable bed and efficient ensuite grohe design shower bathroom. Polite and informative staff. Gym small but made me excercise. A breeze compared to the last hotel on this trip.

    « Fine but nothing special »

    I've stayed in some great Best Westerns in Europe and this one doesn't really rate. It's perfectly adequate for a stop-over, which is how lots of people seem to use it. The outside looks a bit dumpy but it's fine inside (once you get up the staircase to reception, a bummer when you're lugging your suitcase) and the room was actually quite comfortable. The two best things about this hotel for us were 1) the grocery store just down the street; and 2) the late check out time (noon, I think) that allowed us to go wandering in Limoges for two hours before getting back on the road. If you do stay here, definitely take a walk into the old city just up the road and meander on some of the back streets. We were there on a Sunday and not a lot was open but we enjoyed the covered market (LOTS of fresh produce!) and found our way to Sugar Tree, a cafe run by an American expat that I reviewed separately. One complaint is that we had arranged parking via email only to find that there was no record of it on our reservation; it turned out to be no big deal given that there was ample on-street parking but be sure to include parking when you're making the reservation rather than separately by email if you want to park in their garage.

    « Most comfortable bed ever! »

    We stayed one night here - travelling through the region. The hotel is in a great spot for sight-seeing. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small but we did have an extra bed. Great bathroom - loved the shower. Wifi was great - needed to get login codes from the desk and had to keep logging in every so often - a bit of a pain. We didn't opt for breakfast but there are cafes and shops nearby. The best thing was the bed - it was huge and probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in. That and the quietness of the room +aircon, we really enjoyed our stay. Well Recommended!

    « Very good overnight stay. Jessica, on reception, is a star! »

    Small hotel, has limited secure parking but it's free to park on the street and it seems like a safe district. Arrived late and unexpected (this was an impromptu stopover on a long trip). Unusually for France (in my experience) the receptionist, Jessica, was extremely helpful and efficient and recommended a local restaurant which was very close and excellent. Room was quiet clean and well equipped, beds comfortable. Will certainly return if in Limoges again.

    « Good »

    It was the first time we try Best Western hotel, it was a good stay. The staff is professional, the room was great, the breakfast OK. No surprise! No more comment, but if we have another opportunity to try this brand, we will do!

    « Ok for a budget. »

    This place is pretty good. Went off the trip advisor ratings and yes it was clean and in a good location. I would stay here again. The staff were ultra helpful and they even washed our windscreen! Gave us good recommendation for dinner and it rocked. Chez (something)?

    « Great overnight stay »

    From the outside it is not promising but inside it is very friendly, very helpful, clean with everything we wanted. Just a few minutes walk to the old town which has a few lovely old streets. We even got our windscreen cleaned whilst we were asleep. Well done hotel. Excellent value for money.

    « Excellent place to stay in Limoges »

    We found this to be a very clean and conveniently located hotel very close to the centre of Limoges - within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast (which is not included in the price) was excellent. We'll definitely be back at Christmas when we return to spend time with the French half of the family. The beds were comfortable and the price very reasonable. I'd recommend it without hesitation.

    « Good hotel ! Good price ! »

    Well located for the downtown and University activities, just a 25 minutes walking from the Technical part of the University of Limoges. A lot of nice bars, restaurants around, as well a Carrefour City near the basement. Good room, quality, breakfast buffet with self squizzed fresh orange juice. A must ! If good luck, parking on the street, the hotel parking is really small. City Hall near and a small gym on the basement.

    « Excellent !, »

    The front of house staff are excellent - particularly the lady. So helpful We had a wonderful room, for those with mobility problems. Well priced and a good breakfast and secure parking. Room much larger than usual on the Continent and well located for Bars, bistros and restaurants. It caters well for conferences

    « Lovely stay »

    Very helpful and friendly staff, very comfortable and clean room, breakfast was 15 euro which seemed a bit on the expensive side. Quiet and peaceful. Good for close proximity to the airport. Would recommend this hotel highly.

    « Scary Shower »

    Nice quiet hotel on the edge of the city centre ( 10 minutes walk) friendly staff and helpful too. The room was just fine and comfortable. The shower has 4 controls , one for temperature which you recognise with ease , one for a hand held shower , one for the fixed shower and finally the joker in the the pack the one that fires the six other jets of water at you . Not dangerous at all but interesting. Breakfast was very nice and a little more to English tastes.

    « Excellent place to stop in Limoges »

    Not the easiest place to find, but worth it when you get there, good service, secure parking for car and motorbike (the latter was much appreciated by us). Good base to use for exploring the city. All the main sights are within walking or bus range.

    « Birthday night out »

    I chose this hotel because I wanted to have a celebration meal in Limoges with my husband for his birthday without the worry of having a drink and driving home. The hotel was only slightly more than a 2 way taxi journey. The hotel and staff were excellent in every way. Friendly, helpful, welcoming staff. Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms and an excellent breakfast (though I still find it difficult to drink tea which is not made with boiling water). We loved it and will definitely go there again.

    « solid, clean, convenient »

    needed a place to stay over while on a road trip. our room was very clean and comfortable. the breakfast buffet was tasty and fresh with a surprisingly wide variety of foods. there is a parking lot where you can park for 10 euros per day.

    « Lovely hotel »

    This hotel is perfect for a long weekend stay in Limoges, the rooms are clean, spacious and the staff extremely pleasant. Breakfast was great, loads to choose from and the pancakes/waffles were cooked fresh on arrival! Only downside is the bar area, it could be moved to an area away from the reception and the parking was very limited. However this did not spoil our trip, it was amazing. The hotel is centrally located and we would return without doubt again.

    « Great Location good nights sleep »

    This is a great location for Limoges , and being a city hotel I did not expect the room to be so quiet which is a bonus, the room is very clean and had a very good nights sleep , so that was impressive, the cups as previous people commented have no handles ,but really didn't bother me it's a bit quirky but the fact that a kettle is provided and you can make a cup of tea is good also in our superior room we had. There was a fridge and two bottles of water ,parking was also provided again not always easy to find in a city, the only thing which could be improve upon is a restaurant in the hotel,there is a Michelin starred restaurant 2 mins walk away but we didn't fancy sitting down to 3 course meal after our journey, so we took a walk and found Lauthentique Brassiere with average food ,great service they tried so hard ,but the highlight was a gentleman playing the piano almost non stop it was fantastic while we ate.

    « Excellent for location and comfort »

    The hotel is within easy walking distance of the old part of town (most restaurants, etc). It is impeccably clean with high-end fixtures in the bathroom and shower. We were part of a group that was spread over several hotels in Limoges and those of us staying at the Best Western felt we had picked the winner. (Others are either too spartan, like the B&B...or too far out of the way so that you can't walk to restaurants at night.) There is a supermarket right next door which was very convenient. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommend. (The ONE annoying thing was the way they set up the free Wifi, with a highly customized password of random numbers and letters you could not memorize and which had to be reconnected every day and every time you re-entered hotel. Still, would definitely stay here again.)

    « Perfect location and great staff »

    Absolutely perfect location for a long weekend exploring Limoges, just walking distance from shops, restaurants, sights and the river. Front desk staff were so attentive and ridiculously patient with my poor French, never once interrupting or anticipating where I was trying to go with my questions. First class recommendation of La Cheverny too by Carol who always seemed to be working. Great hotel room too which felt and looked like it had been cleaned and tidied several times a day.

    « Excellent hotel, good stopping off place on way to South »

    This is definitely worth the money - excellent rooms, secure parking (although rather tight parking space, not easy to manoeuvre into), pleasant and helpful reception staff. Free Wifi was not fast but ok, about on a par with most French hotels we've visited. Although the hotel has no restaurant (apart from breakfast, which was fine but unexceptional) the staff were very good about recommending restaurants to visit. Limoges is a good stopping off place going or coming from the South, and has an interesting cathedral with lovely gardens and a small historic part which is worth a visit. The Richelieu is well-placed to visit the centre of town, and easy to access from the Autoroute.

    « Great hotel »

    We booked a suite for a one night stay whilst travelling back to the UK via Limoges Airport. The hotel was very easy to find and is a very short walking distance to the centre of Limoges. I booked one of the limited parking spaces in their garage. There is parking outside on the road but these spaces soon fill up even on a Sunday. The reception staff were great. Our room wasn't ready so we sat in the small lounge and they brought us coffee whilst we had the short wait. The suite we had booked is on the top (6th) floor of a building at the rear of the hotel. There is a covered walk way to the main building so no worries in the rain. The suite was excellent. Very clean and a comfortable bed. It was just as described. As we arrived on a Sunday eating out is somewhat of a challenge. Very few restaurants are open. We had a room service meal at the hotel. They do not have a restaurant but can prepare microwave meals. They were okay, nothing special. We had to return them at first as they were not heated through. The staff were excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was simple and a although not a great choice we were more than happy. If we're were to return to Limoges I certainly would stay at this hotel again.

    « An enjoyable stop-over in Limoges »

    We stayed only one night, primarily to avoid a 5 a.m. start from the cottage we were staying at near Aubusson, and to return the hire car in good time to check-in for the flight. As we're members of the Best Western Rewards scheme, it made sense to look for a Best Western, but we had no prior experience of this hotel and booked it via the Tourist Information Office in Mont Dore. We got a great welcome, and enjoyed the overnight stay, the room, the breakfast and the helpfulness of all members of staff. Pity it didn't have a full restaurant, as it's virtually impossible to eat when you want to in Limoges. After some hours travelling to Limoges, we wanted to eat around 5.30 p.m., only to find every restaurant in town closed until 7 or 7.30. Obviously, not the fault of this hotel, and not untypical of France, but it's a rule of the hotel that you don't bring food to your room so, as we were hungry, we had to buy snack food from a supermarket. Bit of a shame.

    « Recommended for a stopover hotel in Limoges »

    Recently refurbished. We stayed in a superior room which was extremely comfortable, quiet and everything worked well. Lovely bathroom, excellent shower and heated towel rail. They even supplied two bottles of complimentary mineral water in the fridge. Very convenient for the city centre. They have a garage which costs ?10 per night. There are only five spaces and some are quite tricky particularly if you have a large car. If you want to use it, I suggest you contact the hotel and reserve a space. Very convenient for the city centre. Breakfast was pretty good too. Would definitely recommend if visiting Limoges.

    « lovely hotel in the perfect location »

    We had a lovely stay. The room was super clean and very modern. They do accept pets. You do need to book carparking, which is not clear on the web site...they did accommodate us; but I would hate to leave my shiny new car in the street.

    « How to renovate a hotel properly »

    It would be difficult to praise this hotel too much. Externally it is an old building internally it is a modern well appointed hotel located near to all the amenities of the city centre. The room we had was very well appointed, very comfortable with a excellent en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was very good and the staff were very attentive without being obtrusive. It does not have a restaurant but it is very close to the city centre amenities. The hotel receptionist recommended some very good restaurants for the 2 nights we stayed. If we ever visit this city again we would certainly stay at this hotel.

    « Would stay again »

    Spent an unplanned stop here on our way down to the south of France and so glad we chose here. From the welcoming invite to the lovely decor in the rooms and secure parking (we were camping so car was fully packed) it ticked all the boxes for us - parking was extra at €12 but next morning we returned to lovely clean windows on our car. Thoughtful little extra. I guess there is always room for improvement and our comment here would be that the tea and coffee making facilities (which are a bonus in France!) were placed a little high - they were on a shelf around chest height, plus the mugs didn't have handles so potentially a little danger zone. There was a desk in the room so they would have been better placed there (but probably not if you were a business traveller). We liked the fridge and complimentary water, again all nice little touches. Shower was walk in, powerful and with jets - very welcoming and invigorating after a day on the road. Location is handy for the centre and we had a lovely stroll down the famous butcher street. Would recommend this hotel to a friend.

    « Great location & value »

    Last night stay with great location in city centre before early flight from Limoges airport only 15 mins away. Scorching hot day but large, very well furnished family room with air con, wi fi, fridge provided a great base to explore Limoges. Booked a parking space in the garage off road was worth the small fee.

    Stayed here for one night in August 2015 whilst travelling down to stay with friends at Carcassonne. Staff extremely helpful, rooms excellent, no noise and really close to the Old Town and a great restaurant just 50M away (Le Cheverny) on the same street. Would recommend this place to anyone and don't miss the breakfast really good value for money and the food was good and freshly cooked.

    « Excellent city centre hotel. »

    On a street just 5 min walk to old town. Small parking garage chargeable at 10€. Added bonus that windscreen had been washed overnight! Had a suite on the 6th floor. Everything you would expect and more. Nice shower, not very powerful but the jacuzzi made up for it. Huge, extremely comfortable bed. Excellent free wifi and aircon. Breakfast was 14€. A good choice including scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. All the cereals, pastries etc that you would expect. Very pleasant and helpful reception. If I'm ever visiting Limoges again will not look any further.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We stopped here on our way back north to Calais, booked through bookings.com. On arrival you have to get the staff to open the car park, and on-street it is difficult to park, so it helps if there is more than one of you! The car park is very secure, good if you have a car full of stuff as we did. The room is very nice, recently refurbished. The bathroom is also good, everything works! One slight downside is that they have soap/shower gel dispensers, rather than proper soap and small bottles. But this is not enough to lose a star. The bed is very comfortable with proper pillows! It is very quiet (we were on the fourth floor in the new annexe). The air conditioning works well. There are some small but good public spaces. We did no have breakfast at 14 euros each, so I cannot comment on the food. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but Limoges is on your doorstep! The staff were very friendly, recommended some places to go, and to eat, but we did not have much interaction with them in all honesty. This is not a five star hotel, but certainly worth 5 stars from me! If you plan to stop in Limoges, this is a very good option.

    Stayed here for two nights and it was absolutely excellent. The staff were so nice and helpful. I can't compliment them enough.The express breakfast was very nice and it was plenty if you don't want a big breakfast. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. There was complimentary water in the room and tea and coffee making facilities. There is also a gorgeous restaurant across the road, Le Cheverney. Fabulous hotel. Would love to go back.

    « Clean room with good air conditioning »

    Close to the train station, handy for the trams and the metro. Desk staff very pleasant, rooms are clean and the air con is good. Bit of train noise, but too tired to care. Suggest you take earplugs if things like that bother you. Main selling point is proximity to TGV when in transit. Nowhere decent to eat nearby. The famed, Le Danton, was closed when we were there which was a shame for us - however it is a quick and cheap tram ride to Lyon Centre. Lots of beggars at the station, so change needed or the phrase 'non merci' depending on your point of view.

    « Excellent place to stay - highly recommended »

    The room was very comfortable, even for the dog, parking was secure, staff were delightful and it was a.n excellent breakfast (fancy tea bags in the little fabric bags, freshly cooked pancakes). The whole experience was better than many 5* places we've stayed.We will definitely stay again.

    Well positioned for visiting Limoges - just 5 minutes walk to historic centre. Very modern hotel rebuilt in an older building in 2014. We had a First floor room at the back - extremely quiet. Used the secure on-site parking - cost 10 Euro's though free on street parking nearby.
